51 Symons, John DavidQuercetin: a treatment for hypertension? - a review of efficacy and mechanismsQuercetin is a polyphenolic flavonoid. Common sources in the diet are apples, onions, berries, and red wine. Epidemiological studies have found an inverse relationship between dietary quercetin intake and cardiovascular disease. This has led to in vitro, in vivo, and clinical research to determine ...2010
52 Shaw, Janet M.; Moyer-Mileur, Laurie L.The new glucose revolution: is the authoritative guide to the glycemic index the right dietary solution for lifelong health?The persistence of an epidemic of obesity, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes suggests that new nutritional strategies are needed if the epidemic is to be overcome. A promising nutritional approach suggested by this thematic review is carbohydrate restriction. Under conditions of carbohydra...2010
53 Ferguson, Sarah HargusAcross-talker effects on non-native listeners' vowel perecption in noiseThis study explored how across-talker differences influence non-native vowel perception. American English (AE) and Korean listeners were presented with recordings of 10 AE vowels in /bVd/ context. The stimuli were mixed with noise and presented for identification in a 10-alternative forced-choice t...2010
54 Wambaugh, Julie L.Sound production treatment: application with severe apraxia of speechAcquired apraxia of speech (AOS) has been shown to be responsive to behavioural intervention. Although numerous treatments for AOS have been developed, most have received limited study. Specifically, the AOS treatment evidence base is compromised by a lack of replication of treatment effects. Sound ...2010-01-01
55 Symons, John DavidCeramide-induced disruption of endothelial nitric oxide synthase dimerization in bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) is not secondary to peroxynitrite formationAn estimated 23.6 million individuals in the United States have diabetes and of those 90-95% have type II diabetes. Cardiovascular complications (e.g., hypertension and vascular dysfunction) are four-fold more prevalent in patients with type II diabetes.1 The mechanism(s) responsible for increased s...2010-01-01

Cardiovascular complications (e.g., hypertension and vascular dysfunction) are four-fold more prevalent in patients with type II diabetes. To gain insight into mechanisms responsib...Ceramide-induced disruption; Nitric oxide synthase dimerization; Bovine aortic endothelial cells; BAEC; Peroxynitrite formation; Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-01-20
57 Dycus, Tiffany M; Parker, Marcus GeraldMaintaining balance through fitness funThe risk for falls increases dramatically with age. Approximately 25% - 35% of people over the age of 65 years experiences one or more falls each year (Shumway-Cook, 1997). The Berg Balance Test has been shown to have moderately good sensitivity, and high specificity, and therefore is a good pred...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18
58 Hargroder, Jessica Lynn; Pham, Ann XuanPreventing falls in the elderlyExercise programs have been found to reduce falls in the elderly. In a study published in 2009, only 8 weeks of exercise training 3 times/week (including calistinics, muscle power, body balance, and walking training ) decreased the incidence of falls in the elderly population by 12% (Iwamoto, et al...Trapeze Interactive Poster2010-05-18

61 Dibble, Leland E.Eccentric exercise versus usual-care with older cancer survivors: the impact on muscle and mobility- an exploratory pilot studyBackground: Resistance exercise programs with high compliance are needed to counter impaired muscle and mobility in older cancer survivors. To date outcomes have focused on older prostate cancer survivors, though more heterogeneous groups of older survivors are in-need. The purpose of this explorat...2011
62 Marcus, RobinAn eccentrically biased rehabilitation program early after TKA surgeryRehabilitation services are less-studied aspects of the management following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) despite long-term suboptimal physical functioning and chronic deficits in muscle function. This paper describes the preliminary findings of a six-week (12 session) eccentrically-biased rehabili...2011
63 Hannon, James C.Determination of step rate thresholds corresponding to physical activity intensity classifications in adultsBackground: Current recommendations call for adults to be physically active at moderate and/or vigorous intensities. Given the popularity of walking and running, the use of step rates may provide a practical and inexpensive means to evaluate ambulatory intensity. Thus, the purpose of this study wa...2011
64 Dibble, Leland E.Development of a scale to assess avoidance behavior due to a fear of falling: the fear of falling avoidance behavior questionnaireBackground. A history of falls or imbalance may lead to a fear of falling, which may lead to self-imposed avoidance of activity; this avoidance may stimulate a vicious cycle of deconditioning and subsequent falls. Objective. The purpose of this study was to develop a questionnaire that would quanti...2011

66 Podlog, Leslie WilliamA review of return to sport concerns following injury rehabilitation: practitioner strategies for enhancing recovery outcomesObjectives: Evidence suggests that competitive athletes returning to sport following injury rehabilitation may experience a range of psychosocial concerns. The purpose of this paper is to review some of the psychosocial stresses common among returning athletes and to provide practitioner strategies ...2011-01-01
67 Wambaugh, Julie L.Apraxia of speech: perceptual analysis of trisyllabic word productions across repeated sampling occasionsEarly apraxia of speech (AOS) research has characterized errors as being variable, resulting in a number of different error types being produced on repeated productions of the same stimuli. Conversely, recent research has uncovered greater consistency in errors, but there are limited data examining ...2011-01-01
68 Newton, MariaThe influence of a simulated 'pep talk' on athlete inspiration, situational motivation, and emotionCoaches routinely use pep talks to inspire and motivate athletes, but the efficacy of this strategy has not been empirically examined. Conceptually based on Thrash and Elliot's [3, 4] inspiration research this study explored the impact of a simulated pep talk on inspiration, inspiration to perform, ...2011-01-01
